Started a thread about lime.

One other thing I have heard about is plot start? Maybe this is good alternative for my spring plots? Any experience?

"2.5 Gallons of PlotStart™ = 1 Ton of Lime Per Acre." I texted this to our ag land renter, he farms 1,000s of acres here in Wisconsin. He replied, "Bull Sh_t!" This is from the NDA, "Liquid lime is the new pelletized lime in the food plot world as it is advertised to “amend the soil faster.” Since this product must be ground extremely fine to dissolve in solution and be applied as a liquid, this claim is true. The smaller particle size allows this lime to react faster with the soil. However, this product is often 10 to 20 times more expensive per acre than bulk ag lime! That means if ag lime costs you $50 per acre, liquid lime would cost $500 to $1,000 per acre. Also, since all the particles are so fine, you don’t get the longevity from the amendment that you get with ag lime. That means you need to apply lime more frequently."

Ask a farmer if they are using liquid lime. BC

I don’t know for sure if it’s worth doing but I planted 2 acres of soybeans in one acre plots I tested the soil one was 5.8 the other was 6.0 ph of course. I couldn’t get any lime spread for a bunch of reasons.So I sprayed a jug of this stuff on each plot.We have grown a bunch of acres of green beans and soybeans commercially my two plots would compete or out yield any of them.Our weather this year was not the most favorable by any measure.Just saying Good luck Lewis
